Challenge

Streamline Access to Food Nutrition Information

The USDA sought to transform a 400-page Food Buying Guide (FBG) – used by over 280,000 operators in its child & adult care food programs – to a streamlined, web-based tool that would be accessible from any desktop or mobile device.

Solution

Web-based and Mobile App

Ambit digitized the USDA FBG and created a web-based interactive FBG, enabling users to easily search, navigate and compare food yields, and create and save favorite foods lists.

In addition, Ambit applied Agile methodologies to designing create a complementary mobile app, allowing users to access all FBG tools and data from virtually any device.

Result

Fulfill Children’s Nutritional Needs

Transitioning the FBG to a web-based platform and mobile app enabled the USDA to provide food service professionals with greater access to nutritional information and menu planning tools – facilitating the planning and provision of nutritious meals to more than 34 million children each day.
